ya sorry! accidentally deleted some stuff there :S

just added a spolier warning to the characters!

Vandalism Watch[edit]

Thanks for fighting vandalism on the Drew Carey page, however, you reverted a correction by a bot and left the vandalism there. I appreciate the effort, but please ensure the vandalism is reverted, not the correction. Keep up the good work. --Nehrams2020 03:55, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Star Wars[edit]

In response to your message, I removed the image because 1.) There is already an image of a dual-blade lightsaber in the section and 2.) the image doesn't even appear to be Star Wars related, short of the lightsaber. Whereas the image already there is from Episode 1; top lvl canon. Raveled 01:50, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Breast article[edit]

I saw your comments regarding posting a picture of a male breast. I don't know if you realized it, but your comment was especially appropriate since, upon checking the image that was posted, the picture actually was the user who commented right before you. Chuchunezumi 17:33, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Image:German Window.JPG[edit]

This image's description refers to me (or rather, an old account of mine). I changed the description to refer to you. I hope that's right! —Toby Bartels 20:00, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

FI Thanks![edit]

just wanted to thank you for supporting my image's Featured image nomination here. Blind14 22:04, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Pic copyrights[edit]

Speaking as no more than a fellow Wiki user butting in on a conv :)

If you took it yourself, I usually use "own work, attribution required". An example of this licence can be seen at Hamersley-benjafield and tower 2.jpg (an image I uploaded in similar circumstances). Entirely up to you of course what copyright you use, and everyone's got their own opinion on it. Orderinchaos78 (t|c) 21:23, 8 November 2006 (UTC)


He is the cutest dog ever! I posted him on my page because he represents the patrollers who spot vandalism and other nonsense. And yes it is now safe to say that Tripp is famous, congrats Tripp.___Seadog 22:36, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

Featured picture[edit]

You didn't complete the process for filling out your featured picture page. Sharkface217 19:09, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

I'll try to fix what I can. Sharkface217 19:13, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

I added in all the info you left out. You're welcome. Sharkface217 19:19, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

Your nom[edit]

Heh heh, nice image, but it is already a featured image :p. I have removed it from the main page. Just make sure if you look at the image you will see a featured image template. Cheers! — Arjun 14:47, 5 January 2007 (UTC)


Hi and thanks for creating Template:POTD/2007-03-20. However, it's not time for this picture yet. The FPs go in order of promotion, which you can find at WP:FPT. March 19's is Image:Richat Structure - SRTM.jpg, and the WWI pic you scheduled is 56 pictures behind it, so it's still got some time before it's supposed to appear. As such, I've deleted the template for now. If you're interested in helping schedule the PsOTD and writing the blurbs, let me know and I'll actually get around to writing the guidelines instead of letting them sit on the back-burner. Thanks. howcheng {chat} 17:26, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

POTD scheduling[edit]

Due to a general increase in interest in writing the POTD by a number of different Wikipedians, I've created the POTD scheduling guidelines. Please have a look and feel free to schedule more PsOTD. Thanks! howcheng {chat} 01:09, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

POTD notification[edit]

Hi Toby,

Just to let you know that the Featured Picture Image:Australian infantry small box respirators Ypres 1917.jpg is due to make an appearance as Picture of the Day on May 22, 2007. If you get a chance, you can check and improve the caption at Template:POTD/2007-05-22. howcheng {chat} 16:53, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

POTD and delist notification[edit]

Hi Toby,

Just to let you know that the Featured Picture Image:Ww2-198.jpg is due to make an appearance as Picture of the Day on July 1, 2007. If you get a chance, you can check and improve the caption at Template:POTD/2007-07-01. However, please note that I've also created a delist nomination so that it can be replaced by a brightness-and-contrast-enhanced version that had been uploaded in February 2005. Please see Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/delist/Image:Ww2-198.jpg for the nomination. Regards, howcheng {chat} 19:58, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

FYI, this image has been moved to appear on July 10 instead, July 1 being Canada Day so I'm going to put a Canada-related image there instead. howcheng {chat} 22:40, 27 June 2007 (UTC)


Hi. Please add source and author to the image (on commons) and then remove the no source template. Thank you! Amada44  talk to me 11:47, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
